're not directly getting at that. >> i think the carbon tax makes enormous sense to do with the environment impact of energy use. you can design one in a way that does not cause too much harm for american industries that compete with folks abroad. consumption tax, there are things you can do to treat the income tax to make it look more like a consumption tax. >> i want each of you to give me your thoughts at the end of the day, what do you think the tax code will look like with his conversations between the cop -- between the president speaker boehner are done? >> i think we will have slightly higher marginal tax rates on some high-income tax -- and these 1 high income tax payer. i think there will be a variety of tax exclusions and deductions that are scaled back modestly. >> if scaled-back means capped in some way, i agree completely. rex i think we will see some of those things will back. the top rate will be either 39.6 or 35. it will be somewhere in between. >> we have some common ground here among our economists. thank you, a gentleman for joining us. thank you all. i appreciate the peterson

that the children won't have to go too far, a safe environment and they will learn -- the learning process won't be harmed, that's a powerful argument whether it will be received by people remains to be seen. >> one of the things she says is the fact that she's not going to put schools on the block to be sold. in other words, she is going to rent schools to community services and to even charter schools. >> one charter school advocates are going to fight for control. >> exact. they wouldn't have had to. and the fact is, the reason why there is a lower enrollment east of the river is because a lot of children have been put in charter schools. >> won't this be a question or test of how public schools and charter schools can coexist. >> the chancellor says it makes sense to try and find some synergy there. what it looks like no, one knows. 41,000 in public schools, 31,000 kids in charter schools, that's a 40% balance that has to be addressed in some way. >> i'd go out in a limb. a lot of people are very concerned with the fact that we're not putting enough in public education and we've sold out t
